Blue Sky Thinking: Star Polymer Aligns Clarity with Viscosity for High-perfume Surfactant Systems

Building viscosity and clarity in surfactant systems, especially those that are sulfate-free and have high fragrance loads, is challenging. In response, a new six-armed nonionic associative thickener was developed that effectively bridges many small micelles to create larger, bridged structures that improve viscosity, while retaining clarity.

Patent Pick: Starch Breakdown Builds Viscosity

Novamont inventors are building something new from complete destruction: viscosity. A new patent application explains, on a more "granular" level.

Naturals Grow the Carboxymethyl Cellulose Market

We could all use a little bonding time to stabilize the formula for happiness in life. And similar to human connections, in personal care, the more natural the bonding, the better. Enter: Carboxymethyl cellulose.

Binding Water in 3D: Cellulose Networks for Texture and Sensory Benefits

This article explores a natural raw material sustainably produced from cellulose that improves rheological and sensory properties in cosmetic products. Here, it is tested for matte effects in a face cream, for hair conditioning to reduce combing forces, and for viscosity recovery in sunscreen sprays.

Don’t Let the Polymers Bite

Halloween is kicking off with the IFSCC Congress 2016, which consists of various launches and innovations. Lubrizol Corporation is one of many companies introducing new concepts, including its Carbopol SMART polymers.

Balancing Texture with Electrolyte Resistance for Improved Thickening

Described here are two acrylic rheology modifiers for novel thickening properties in formulations. A pre-neutralized carbomer is shown to impart a lighter, smoother texture than traditional carbomer while increasing process flexibility. In addition, a new associative acrylate/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer exhibits thickening in high electrolyte media, acts synergistically with surfactants, and facilitates the dispersion of fillers.

Sensory, Rheology Solutions at Suppliers' Day

The Lubrizol Corporation presents sensory and rheology innovations for skin and hair at booth 1323 during this week's NYSCC Suppliers' Day.
